Regular field visits are a permanent task of the Better Globe Forestry operational team. In this case, Jan Vandenabeele and Samuel Nakhone inspect the activities in the field and in the nursery of Nyongoro. They also lead the mandatory team meetings. The issues discussed are both technical and motivational.

Better Globe Forestry takes the health and safety regulations in handling chemicals very seriously, therefore the team wears protective clothing to complete the task.
Samuel Nakhone inspects the drilling activities. The tractor and drill can dig up to 600 holes a day in moist circumstances. When the soil is too dry, the drill is of no use and manual labor is required.
